“At short notice, we needed an expert on statistics to analyse a report and prepare a reply. We engaged Dr Roberto Trotta who was responsive and very easy to work with. He is very skilled at explaining difficult concepts in readily understandable terms, and his work product was excellent. I would recommend Dr. Trotta to anyone looking for an expert on statistics”.
–Sophie Palmer, Solicitor
“Dr. Trotta did a superb job under considerable time pressure to produce succinct, thorough and persuasive reports. He is clearly a true expert in the field. He is also a pleasure to deal with. For expert statistical analysis I would not look anywhere else.”
–David Goldstone, QC
“I called Dr Trotta of Data Fusion Consultants as an expert witness in a 3 day Public Inquiry. He gave evidence on the likely effect of a new housing development on the operation of a highly sensitive neighbouring scientific facility. The contested evidence was highly theoretical and extremely technical. Dr Trotta was able to present his evidence in a comprehensive but (most importantly) accessible manner to the Tribunal. As a result, the Secretary of State was persuaded that the impact would be acceptable, notwithstanding a detailed objection from the operator of the facility.
It goes without saying that Dr Trotta [of Data Fusion Consultants] is extremely bright. He is also focussed, hard working and charming. Whilst astute to address the technical issues, he never lost site of the bigger picture. I would not hesitate to instruct him again.”
Giles Cannock LLM MA (Cantab) – Barrister, Kings Chambers
“I engaged Data Fusion’s services to analyse and explain the implications of a complex mathematical paper relating to the probability of a rare event and the associated risks.
Dr Trotta’s [of Data Fusion Consultants] skill lies in distilling the essence of a problem, being able to consider it at both a conceptual and detailed level. His ability to step back and take the overview is an important, differentiating factor augmented by clear verbal and written communications which make it easy for the lay person to understand. I strongly recommend Data Fusion Consultants’ services to any prospective client.”
“As an organisation we required a high level mathematical critique of a model used to assess the probability of an event in the nuclear industry. We deliberately chose an expert in statistical methods from outside the nuclear industry to provide a fresh approach, as most of the assessments at that time had been by experts within the industry. We were impressed by Data Fusion Consultants’ ability to master the complex background required to execute the brief and with the clarity and presentation of the report. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Data Fusion Consultants.”
Louise Barton – Lydd Airport Action Group
“Having worked with Data Fusion Consultants on a public inquiry for a proposed residential development, it was clear that not only they are experts in their field, but they are able to communicate complex arguments and ideas so that those with limited scientific knowledge can understand. They are extremely responsive, thorough and professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending Data Fusion Consultants to potential clients.”
